Announcing 6 Concerts Coming to Rochester Neighborhoods This Summer
Concerts are returning to Rochester, Minnesota wards this summer! That's six free Wednesday evening concerts, one in each ward in the city. And each will be hosted by the Rochester City Councilmember from that ward.

Just like last year, local bands will open for "regional/national/or international headliners (while) Promoting neighborhood vitality and livability while emphasizing activities outside the downtown area." All events start at 5:30 PM and are over at 8 PM.
The goal is two-fold. Get more going on in the Rochester City Parks (the word they like to use is 'activate'). If people see them and use them for the concerts, they're more likely to come back and use them again. That's what they're there for, let's use 'em up!
Also, it helps raise awareness of Rochester's ward system, a council member being elected from each ward to represent the people in that area.
As always, if you have a comment, complaint, or concern about something I wrote here, please let me know: firstname.lastname@example.org
